    My God My Broken Heart

    I walk in the room to see my baby girl for the first time.... She lays there so helpless, tubes down her throat and in her nose.  IV's are attached everywhere.I start to cry as the tears roll down my cheeks.   All I can think to do is sing to her as I did every day when she...

    I am not so sure about that.

    I’ve heard people reason that bad things happen to open the door for something good to follow. Really? If there is a god or higher power, I don’t believe that he would be so cruel to bring bad things over our life paths so that good things can follow. Yes, surely if...

    Yes, I believe everything happens

    for a reason. I got hated by a lot of people for being who I am, but in the long run, I discovered I am really better off without them in my life. So I now believe God always have better plans for us!

    Everything. I believe our paths were already

    set. Our pain strengthens us. Everything we give out to the universe we get back.

    Yesterday I had to idea this app existed.

    I came across it by mistake while searching for something on Google. I have a feeling I am supposed to be here though. Time will tell the reason. I hope it is a good one.

    “I believe that everything happens

    for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together...

    When I was a child I loved microscopes.

    I thought it was like looking into another world of secret little mysteries. But as I grew up life happened, my family hit some hard times and my marks suffered in school. I barely graduated high school and knew I would never be smart enough for anything so I gave up. I played...

    I am blessed that i've been tested lately

    and always been testing because when Allah wants things to happen they happen such miraculously and everything falls into place so beautifully that it amazes you. It feels like a spiritual journey or in my case it really was for me.

    I have always been a firm believer of things

    It's funny to think that

    as we get older...u realize that everything does happen for a reason or purpose! When we accept that we're the authors to our own script in life.... You can start to wonder that all that u go thru is meant to be?! Isn't it all a question of attitude though? Instead if getting...

    I used to think there was no

    such thing as "reason", I always had a nietzche-like approach thinking we created our own outcomes...but the more I live the more I begin to see that sometimes people enter/exit our lives for very good reasons.

    I always say this to myself

    and also to other people who are going through a really hard time. If someone comes into your life there is always a reason for them, and if they leave well it doesn't mean that it's the end of the world, it just means that they are no longer apart of your story so their chapter...

    Knowing you can live without someone

    but not wanting to is the ultimate dilemma. Do you stay still due to a sense of safety, real or imagined? Do you leave, closing the door to a past that helped define you up until now? Change is something that is coveted by many but feared by everyone at the same time. How do...

    I truly do. Everything is a part of

    who you are. Even people coming into your life or crossing paths. There can even be those rare people you meet and have an instant connection and very deep bond and feelings for very quickly. One person can alter and change your life for the better.

    and i havent made friends yet, i feel very lonely but i believe that God wont send you to a place with no reason. I do put myself out there but its always in vain. My gender and race do put me down i guess, very proud to be black but others dont appreciate what i can offer.
